За прошедшие сутки российско-террористические войска устроили 127 обстрелов и неудачную атаку под Староигнатовкой.

Об этом сообщил сегодня на брифинге в УКМЦ спикер Администрации Президента Украины по вопросам АТО полковник Андрей Лысенко.

«Сегодня, 10 августа, около 3 часов ночи, после проведения массированной артиллерийской подготовки, четыре сотни боевиков при поддержке 10 танков, 10 БМП и другой техники перешли в наступление в районе Старогнатовки, что находится в треугольнике Волноваха – Комсомольское – Тельманово…Благодаря профессиональным действиям военнослужащих ВСУ попытка наступления была остановлена. Противник понес значительные потери в живой силе и технике и был отброшен на 2-3 км. В ходе контратаки наши военные заняли выгодные позиции, в частности, вернули контроль над стратегическими высотами…Противник понес значительные потери в живой силе и технике и был отброшен на 2-3 км. В ходе контратаки наши военные заняли выгодные позиции, в частности, вернули контроль над стратегическими высотами», – говорится в сообщении.

Лысенко также, сообщил, что эта дерзкая атака оккупантов состоялась на фоне продолжения эскалации обстановки на востоке Украины, вызванная агрессивными действиями НВФ. За вчерашние сутки зафиксировано 127 вражеских обстрелов позиций сил АТО – это наибольшее количество с момента завершения битвы за Дебальцево. Каждый третий обстрел боевиков ведется из тяжелого вооружения. Кроме этого, российско-террористические войска провели 7 минометных и артиллерийских обстрелов украинских населенных пунктов в районе Горловки, Донецка и Мариуполя.

Operational data from Information Resistance:

Russian-terrorist troops in Donbas continue actively shelling the positions of Ukrainian troops, as well as civilian objects, including the use of heavy armaments in a number of areas. At the same time, an increase is observed in the number of terrorist shellings with the use of small arms, which are recorded practically along the entire demarcation line.

The most intense shellings by militants were recorded to the west and northwest ofDonetsk, in areas south of Donetsk (Berezove, Hranitne), in the vicinity of Horlivka, near the Svitlodarsk bridgehead, in the seaside areas, as well as in the area from  Zoloteand Orikhove to Shchastya and Stanytsia Luhanska. Units of Russian-terrorist troops are also highly active between the settlements of Novomykhailivka andPeremoha, in the vicinity of Krasnohorivka, Lozove, southeast of Pisky, nearOpytne and Vodyane, south and north of Avdiivka, and in the vicinity of Troitske,Shumy, and Leninske.

In particular, the militants have deployed 120 mm mortars in the area ofNovomykhailivka, southeast of Mar’inka, and in the vicinity of Pisky, Opytne,Avdiivka, and Leninske. Armored vehicles advanced towards the ATO forces’ positions several times, under cover of mortar fire – two tanks fired on the advanced positions of Ukrainian troops near Pisky for 20 minutes; one tank and two BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles shelled the ATO positions near Opytne for 30 minutes (during this shelling, two 125 mm munitions fired by the militants’ tank detonated in the settlement of Vodyane).

Terrorists deployed 122 mm artillery for brief fire strikes against the ATO forces’ strongholds near Troitske, between the Horlivka – Artemivsk motorway (in the area of Kurdyumivka – Zelenopillya), and on the positions near Hranitne. Two strikes were also made on Krasnohorivka.

In the vicinity of Avdiivka, the ATO forces were shelled from 122 mm and 152 mm artillery, and 120 mm mortars. On the first line (closer to Yasynuvata), a terrorist tank group was spotted maneuvering (without opening fire).

In the area of the Svitlodarsk bridgehead, militants used mortars (82 mm and 120 mm) against the advanced ATO positions near Popasna and Luhanske; AGS-17 automatic grenade launchers were deployed against the positions of Ukrainian troops south of Svitlodarsk.

A terrorist armored group (3 tanks) was operating in the vicinity of Shchastya, supported by 82 mm mortars from the direction of Vesela Hora. The armored group shelled the settlement of Shchastya, with advance and retreat of the armored vehicles being supported by AGS-17 grenade launchers. During combat, several militant infantry groups were spotted moving towards and along the demarcation line. These enemy groups opened fire against the ATO forces’ advanced positions, in a number of instances.

A group of “specialists from Russia” has emerged in Luhansk, focused on organizing contraband supplies of food from Ukraine-controlled territory. The group includes 16 people, including 3 women; they are predominantly representatives of the FSB and other Russian authorities. This group has no permanent dislocation, takes special effort to avoid attracting attention (the group members are dressing to look like “local militants”), are moving around aboard two Volkswagen T-4 minibuses with tinted windows (without license plates), two Tiger GAZ-2330 armored combat vehicles, and a “civilian” jeep. Members of these group are reportedly questioning the “LNR” [Luhansk People’s Republic] “businessmen” and “officials” involved in smuggling for information about any corrupt Ukrainian military servicemen (officials in commanding authorities, as well as members of private corps at checkpoints) who are participating in contraband schemes (possibly, to recruit them in the future under threat of blackmail). The local “Ministry of state defense” has been ordered to “provide extensive cooperation” to this group without interfering in its activities. The commanders of the group are in regular contact with the “LNR” leadership, while some of the group members are regularly visiting the “front line.” A similar special group from Russia has been spotted in Donetsk.

Ukraine in 1990 – how we managed to devide from the USSR

The student’s Revolution on the granite in Kyiv in 1990… Further it became a reason for the ukrainian government not to sign the new agreement for the “NEW USSR”… It was the first victory of the democracy in Ukraine… There were three democtratic revolutions in Ukraine during 1990-2015, but due to the nature tolerance and peaceful character of ukrainian people the country is still under the power of former system… Only this year 2015 the law against communist symbols was passed, many members of the today’s government are “from the USSR” communists leaders… What ukrainians want? – They want to change their big country in a peaceful way… Who are against this? – The Russian leaders, the most memebers of the today’s government “from the former USSR”… Does the Ukraine has the chance for changes? – Yes, ukrainians are one of the most peaceful nations, but they love the freedome most of all… And now they struggle for the democracy in their peaceful way…
